NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition is now available on Xbox Game Pass PC. The new port features more display options than the version found on Steam. HDR, a borderless video setting, 4K UI textures, and AMD FidelityFX features are available thanks to contributions by modder QLOC.

The new upgrades follow the tumultuous launch of the 2018 original, where fans had to fix various issues such as lack of 1080p support and poor framerates. All of that led to the release of NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition. The game still has a 60 FPS cap, which matches the Xbox version.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
